So I just started week 8 on 20mg. It's a slow journey and I do think I have seen some improvement. Emotionally I'm fine, but physically I'm still hanging on to some of the physical symptoms of depression, I no longer think these are medicine side effects, but the physical manifestations of the desease. However, I'm not ready to up the dose and go back to square one with side effects. I'm counting on it being the 8-12 week turnaround as most have said. But, having said that, I can't seem to shake this heavy head, light headache, slight weekness in legs. I"m in that middle ground where I can still function and paticipate in things, but I'm not all in - it's a weird feeling. And, it's still hard to get up in the mornings, although I push myself to do so. Anybody hit this stage at week 8 or abouts and make it through to 100%? Hanging on to hope, but it can be very exhausting emotionally and physically. And encouragement from those who've been there would be appreciated!
